For the amount of exercise I give my creative muscles, I am sure it is the skinniest part of me by now! ~ p.hawkins

Some people have this brainy 'literal' view of a creative process. Not so much in an artsy way but a more facts and details approach. Some people need a layout or a visual diagram on paper to see the creative plan and then they start up their own orchestrated flow of ideas and actions. Saying the artistic expressions out loud just doesn’t do it for them. That doesn't mean its bad, its just a different approach.

I was telling a good friend yesterday that her and I get creative just sitting on the clouds inside our heads. The very moment the words left my lips we both knew exactly what i meant! We laughed, yet it is so very true.

I am blessed or cursed, depending on how you want to look at it.

I have always been told that the creative juices will keep flowing if you exercise the muscles of magination, vision, creativity and the like. And to be honest, I do that constantly. It is an unconscious activity. It just happens. I cant stop it. The idea comes and I can see it in my head almost immediately. Next thing you know there are 37 more ideas coming out of my mouth. (oh don’t get me wrong, that doesn’t mean that those were 37 GOOD ideas) hahah

The hard part is opening up my head and letting others lean over and look down in at the holographic imaginings floating around in all that grey matter! (eeeuuuuuu now that is a visual!)

Have a great Thursday everyone!
